states have passed restrictive voter id laws and several others have tried. in texas, who is voter id law was challenged by the justice department in court today, texas classifies its law as an emergency legislation so that they can rush it through before the election. in texas, a gun permit is a valid voter id. but a university-issued identification is not. hum, wonder who that benefits. the republican argument is that well, everybody has a driver's license or you should have to showed an id to cash a check. why wouldn't you require one to vote? now, that wouldn't be so bad if the list of valid ids weren't so limited in so many of these states. as an example, many investigatorserly people or those who live in cities, people of all economic classes don't have driver's licenses. birth certificates. well 48% of women, those who change their name for marriage don't have a birth certificate with their current lem name in most states, you have to call for a copy of your birth certificate voting rights act declared paying to vote is unconstitutional. some sta
this race is going to come down to battleground states -- >> and texas is a loss, i agree with you. >> yeah well exactly. be -- no i -- the other thing i'm thinking -- chris i'm going -- because fox news would run that footage 24-7. he is president of the black people, look at him talking to the black people, and the black people are cheering. >> yeah. i don't know although bill press made the point that there is nothing on the president's schedule, which usually means he is taking a trip to some clandestine place. >> oh. >> he may be making a trip overseas or something. so can't do it. romney says the think he did make inroads with black voters -- >> computer says naaa. >> he said i spoke to a number of african american leaders, even ones that are not in sports. >> he is so tall and black, he must be in sport. >> i spoke with a number of african american leaders after the event, and they say a lot of folks don't want to say they are not going to be voting for barack obama, but that are disappointed, at the end of my speech having a standing ovation was genero
that republican governors ought to be looking at that poll and moving on, too. some southern governors like texas' rick perry wants to vote no on obama-care in his own way. but those governors their version is to secede from healthcare, and they're just dancing for the tea party. i know that. here's my prediction. all those governors, they will all opt in eventually. why? opting out is going to end their political careers. let's use rick perry as an example since he's threaten to go mess with texas. under obama-care most of texas' 6 million uninsured are going to get access to healthcare and federal aid. but that rational argument does not appeal to tea partyers like perry, turning down federal money is a badge of honor for them. but texans are still going to pay for healthcare reform. turning down the medicaid expansion means rejecting $76.3 billion in texas alone for five years. so texans are still going to pay billions in federal medicare taxes, but those texans are not going to get any of the benefits. does rick perry really want to campaign on that? does he want to tell texans, yeah you're g
paul and rick perry in the mix, and interesting that both those requests come from texas since that's where the president was campaigning yesterday. mr. obama says he wants to be a pioneer of insourcing rather than the outsourcing pioneer he has lamed romney. the romney camp painted the president as non-american and called things policies foreign and john sununu said the president doesn't understand america. more with bill back int after the break and more in chat. see you there. few others are going. >>it doesn't get anymore real than this. >>occupy! >>we will have class warfare. >>i'm being violated by the health-care system. >>we're patrolling the area looking for guns, drugs, bodies. >>we go in and spend a considerable amount of time getting to know the people and the characters that are actually living these stories. >>the award winning series "vanguard" only on current tv. we know that back to school time means back to school germs. that's why lysol partners with schools all across the country providing resources designed to help teach healthy habits. so make
home state of texas. he is going to turn down the affordable care act money that his citizens would get to enjoy if he actually accepted it. it will cost his own citizens billions of dollars, but rick perry says this. >> we have some of the finest health care in the world, i mean some incredible healthcare facilities in this country, so the idea that this federal government -- which doesn't like texas to begin with to pick and choose and come up with data to say that texas has the worst health care system in the world is just false on its face. >> it is not the worst in the world. it is the worst in the united states. here let me show you the states here. this would be the amount of states -- oh look at this, the number of people insured, the percentages are pretty good up top. but, oh, here is number 50 texas. now if you are a donor to rick perry, you don't care because you are rich. you don't care about the 26% of the population that doesn't have insurance. but over a quarter of the population not in great shape would be helped tremendously. that's 6.6 milli
to texas saying we don't want to participate in the healthcare reform act even if the federal government showers us with money. rick scott was an executive of a company mireed in healthcare fraud while he was there. what is his logic? >> he's trying to force poor people to go to his healthcare clinics and hand over whatever money they have over to him. it's just naked cruelty and corruption. nothing more than that. it's something that is becoming more and more closely associated with the right wing and the republican party every day. >> eliot: i'm glad to see congressman, you have not lost your capacity to go right to the matter. pull in punches. call it as you see it. something that endeared to you many but not everyone who was the target of your slings and arrows and forthright comments. the question, and we've had this conversation just a few minutes ago with one of your former colleagues. when the 20% goes to the hospital and gets care, who pays for it? >> the fact is that they can't get that care. if you have cancer, there is no hospital in the country that is going to give you free
. it makes sense. but then, you have a guy like republican texas governor rick perry come along and say something like this: >> texas wasn't going to be a part of it expanding socializing of our medicine. so we are not going to participate in exchanges. we are not going to expand medicaid. we are just for the going to be a part of, again socializing health care in the state of texas. >> so in addition to losing out on billions in money to cover their uninsured, texas is going to lose $17,000,000,000 in special federal funds that would support hospitals who care for the uninsured. and their hospitals are going to get slammed. nearly 1 in 4 texans are uninsured, the most in the nation. now, 6 republican governors have decided not to take the health care money, not to opt in including texas and florida, two of the biggest states in the nation. in total, nearly 4 million people from those 6 states will lose health care coverage by their failure to opt in. joying me to discuss the predictament for hospitals in particular is bruce siegel, the ceo of the nati
there is some conversation and to the outcome. but there are legal challenges texas in particular. the brennan center is involved in the challenge in texas. >> they cut back on voting rights all across the country. a lot of them have been blocked or blunted this year. a lot of these voteer i.d. laws violate the voter right act. the justice department looked at it and said these acts cannot go forward because they take votes away from people of color latino blacks. there was a trial last week in federal court where the justice department argued in texas and we were in that case with them and we think this will prove that many, many people and the state didn't have a good answer to how they could vote. >> eliot: if in texas you can vote, this will take one state off the map where there is a hurdle to vote. pennsylvania is a real concern. this may not be an easy or immediate challenge. >> pennsylvania is a big key state in any presidential election. they recently just passed their law. it is being put into effect right before the election. the philadelphia inquirer looked at this and said somethi
in pennsylvania, significant numbers in texas. there are legal troubles as well there is a trial question questioning it, is there way we can strike toes these statutes down? >> only in certain places. the reason why the challenge is going on here in texas where we have our national convention and in south carolina is because they're covered by section 5 of the voting rights act that requires any changes to the time place or manner in which an election is carried out because of their previous bad behavior disenfranchiseed so many because of race and other differences, they have to make sure that they go through the justice department voting right section. the justice department determined through their research if we pass our allow these particular programs to be implemented in texas and in south carolina, that those billions of americans as we mentioned earlier would not be able to vote and as a carry out of that, very well we know it has to be stopped. the law provides that protection. but section 5 is not covered throughout the country. it's only covered in those states that has an est
, then texas officials are making pregnant women powerless. that brings us to our number of the day. 39.38. that's the section in the proposed new rules for the texas department of health and human services. it says that doctors cannot even tell their patients about abortions. caregivers can lose state funds if they mention that abortion is an option, or if they say where one can be performed. a woman cannot talk about to her own physician about a perfectly legal medical procedure. this policy mandates less knowledge and less medical help, and interferes with the relationship between a doctor and patient in a grotesque way. simply put it endangerers the well-being of the mother. texas often likes to keep government out of the way of business. well, what goes on in a doctor's office is personal business, and government needs to get out. >>it's the place where democracy is supposed to be the great equalizer, where your vote is worth just as much as donald trump's. we must save the country. it starts with you. v it's go time! >>every weeknight cenk uygur calls out the mainstream media.
and texas, the obama campaign president obama is not likely to be very engaged in getting out votes. he is going to win california. it's going to win new york. it's going to win illinois. but we have to run up the ask the court in those states. >> that's why we recuted just the best candidates that you can imagine. there is an unquenchable thirst the american people have among ideology and ideas. not for problems but solution. we recruited people who have proven records of solutions, of delivering for their communities. >> well, and one of the races actually that you are focusing on is omney beara fighting an independent who beat him last time. he was on the show a few weeks ago. take a license. >> your district, though is getting flooded, i understand with super p.a.c. money and this was true last time. how hard is it to get your message out when such big guns are aimed at you? >> you know what? karl rove came in at the end of the last campaign and won the election for dan lundgren. we think that's going to happen again. >> what can you do congressman,

vote. they have a very strong case. in other states, their state voter i.d. laws such as texas and south carolina, those laws are being challenged by the justice department under the voting rights act. the voting right acts says you cannot pass laws that make it hard for minorities to vote. if you pass these laws, they have to get them approved in advance by the experts at the civil rights division. they said wait a minute there, is clear evidence that hundreds of thousands of latino and black voters, much more than the white community, would be affected. >> eliot: that's because they're covered by the voter rights act from prior history. >> under section 5 which applied originally to the states that were oppressing minority voting rights in the 1960s. the state of texas governor rick perry said, oh, the answer is the voting right act is inconstitutional. we don't need it any more. it's hold history. but they would have a better argument if they do in the keep passing laws that would make it heart to vote. >> eliot: rick perry was going to include the justice department--michae
